I went to Interlochen in the summer of 2006 and it turned out to be a very important experience for me. It was…"
"Well, what are the other places you are considering?
I have never been to Interlochen, but I know quite a few people who have gone. They said that the orchestra is great, but you only really play in the mornings, and do other activities in the…"
I was recently accepted into the Interlochen summer program and I'm trying to decide between it a couple other less expensive and potentially equally amazing opportunities. Is Interlochen worth the cost? And if I go, what should I expect?EDIT: I accidentally a word.See More

Interesting. I would have liked to hear the Paulus faster and the Rhein slower, but I agree that you don't want it to sit too long - easy to do that when the harmonies are so rich and pleasing to sing. Looking forward to hearing more. In the meantime, I'm going to feature you on the Pro Playlist
Hi Joseph, thanks for joining our chat last night! I talked to some of my colleagues who went to Interlochen, and they said they would love to discuss it in the Orchestra group. You can use this link to start a discussion in the group. Sam and Joe will respond with their thoughts, and we hope that some of the other members who have attended Interlochen recently will also jump in with their perspectives.
